Obama Quietly Nominates Dem Sen. Chuck Schumer’s Brother-In-Law To Federal Judgeship…






(Politico) (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1211/70855.html) — Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) brother-in-law was quietly nominated by President Barack Obama to a federal judgeship in New Jersey, even though the state’s senior senator, Frank Lautenberg, was leaning toward other candidates, according to a report Monday.


Kevin McNulty, who is married to Schumer’s sister, was nominated for the $174,000-a-year lifetime post in the U.S. District Court on Dec. 16, according to the New York Post (http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/he_schu_in_XaoXJibNNI16jjroHK7aUM).


“McNulty came out of left field,” the Post quoted someone involved in New Jersey’s judicial politics as saying. “McNulty’s not a dumb guy, but people were just, like, ‘How’d that happen?’ ”


The paper’s sources suggested the nomination was a nod by Lautenberg to Schumer, in a bid to stave off opposition from Schumer and other Democratic leaders to the 87-year-old Lautenberg running for reelection in 2014.

DIMS proving that anything goes for their side. The end justifies the means. There are no lows to which the DIMs will not or have not stooped.

Yeah, it's not like he nominated Harriet Miers.

Seriously, you are deluded if you think this is a particularly Democratic thing.

I never said that. It does cross party lines but it is worse in the DIM party. The party of openness and change, of fairness and transparency. The Party that wants to drain the swamp.
Clear yet?:rolleyes::cool:

No one that matters. It's just Nova trying to be relevant in this thread.

The allegation of the OP was cronyism not nepotism.
